She sings, she writes, she produces, she is Lo Carter….Hailing from Atlanta, GA, this multi-talented southern belle enjoys writing and singing about the wonders of love, life, and intimate experiences. A true blend of Classic Soul, R&B and NeoSoul, she puts pen to pad and lets the words and melodies come from deep within. After one listen, you can hear heartfelt passion and soul in her music ascending from underneath the musical influences of Sarah Vaughn, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight, Mary J. Blige, and Eryka Badu.
Lo has backed many independent artists such as Damien Horne, Kevin Whalum, Wil Hogue and Brit Savage, Sara Beck and many more. She has performed throughout the southeast and mid-west United States. She is a hard worker and that hard work is paying off. Lo Carter opened for R&B/Soul sensation Anthony Hamilton in 2008. That same year, her fun loving personality and energy on stage eventually led to performances backing Marvin Sapp at the 2008 Stellar Awards. While a member with the Joe Johnson Band, she’s had the privilege of backing great R&B vocalists like Angela Winbush, Glenn Jones, Chrisette Michelle, and Howard Hewett as well as backing Alexander O’Neal.
In 2011, she released Seasons, her 1st Indie EP, a project many believe to be one of the best Indie EP’s released in recent years. The evidence in this proclamation is backed by rare feat in which Seasons EP exploded onto the United Kingdom music scene reaching number #2 on the UK Soul Chart as well as having two singles in regular radio rotation on stations across 45 different countries. Lo’ s star is rising and this is just the beginning. She was also nominated for a Nashville Independent Music Award in the category of Best Female R&B Artist in 2010 and 2011, Best Female Performance in 2011, and in 2012, she was nominated for five Nashville Independent Music Awards including Album of the Year and Best Live R&B performer(s) and winning Artist of the Year and Best R&B Female Solo artist. Her first LP is due fall of 2013.
Lo Carter continues to give back to the community by participating in charitable benefits, previously lending her support to disaster relief efforts for the Nashville Flood Victims, the Haiti Earthquake efforts, Boys and Girls Club events, and more. She lends her vocal coaching skills to aspiring youth and “young at heart” via community workshops or private lessons; and she consistently works with local community organizations promoting and planning artistic community events.
